“Our Light, Our Hope” is the theme of a special musical program that the Armenian Genocide Centennial Committee of the Armenian Evangelical Union of North America (AEUNA) and the Armenian Missionary Association of America (AMAA) will present on Saturday, January 24, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. at the Majestic Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena, California. The concert will be performed by the Lark Musical Society Choir and Orchestra of Glendale, CA under the direction of Maestro Vatsche Barsoumian.
Part I will reflect the Armenian people’s traditions and heroism. The Armenian nation is one of the most ancient civilizations and boasts significant periods of spiritual, artistic, military, economic, and intellectual achievements.
Part II will commemorate the collective tragedy that befell the Armenian nation in early twentieth century. We shall pay tribute to our martyrs who perished for their ethnicity and Christian faith.
Part III will celebrate our triumphant survival and herald a brighter future. Through our artistic voice we shall also recommit ourselves to the Lord and our Culture.
